Nosková corrected the unsuccessful record of the Czech tennis players in Paris. Only Jiří Lehečka, Karolína Muchová and Markéta Vondroušová made it to the second round before her. The other ten representatives in singles finished.

The finalist of this year's tournament in Adelaide Nosková made her second appearance in the Roland Garros main competition. She managed a break in the sixth game of the first set and took the lead thanks to a 100% serve. Koviničová requested a medical break at the beginning of the second set and had her back treated. After losing serve again in the third game, she ended the duel prematurely.

“It's my first victory at a Grand Slam, so it's special. Especially here at my favorite tournament. I'm happy with how I managed the first set. I played the way I wanted to. Those are definitely positives,” Nosková said at the press conference. “It's a shame that we didn't finish the match, but every win is taken. Of course, I played what I needed to. I saw from the second set that it wouldn't be like the first, so it probably made sense that it ended earlier,” she added .

Krejčíková, the two-time champion of last year's Roland Garros, was eliminated in the 1st round of the clay Grand Slam for the second time in a row. While last year she was not enough against the French Diane Parry, this time she did not even play a set against the 66th player in the world Curenko. She paid for 32 unforced errors.

“Unfortunately, it didn't work out. I didn't feel comfortable on the clay this year from the start. I had nothing to bounce back from. It's a specific surface and I didn't feel comfortable on it like I did two years ago. the match was more about me and my game than about the opponent,” said Krejčíková.

The winner of this year's tournament in Dubai suffered her third defeat in her last four matches and has a record of 5:5 on clay this year. In the opening set, Krejčíková failed to break her opponent's serve, on the contrary, she lost hers twice. In the second set, the Czech Republic led 3:0, but did not add any more points from the score of 4:2. Krejčíková still saved two match points, but Curenková already used the third after one hour and 29 minutes.

The quarter-finalist of last year's Wimbledon, Bouzková, did not follow up on the Parisian clay to advance to the 2nd round after a year and was eliminated in the opening phase for the fourth time. She lost the match in one hour and 51 minutes.

“I served quite badly. I think the percentage of the first serve was quite low. Even so, I had chances, I was leading in both sets. Overall, I was unlucky,” Bouzková told reporters. “It hurts today, but the last few weeks have been where I want to be. The last two months I've been getting into my game. I'll go to the doubles and then there will be preparation for the grass,” she added. The 24-year-old native of Prague was not helped by 21 winning balls, Wang Sin-yü played fifteen more.

Bouzková started the match better and was the first to gain the break advantage in the seventh game. But she lost three games from 4:3 and the 80th player in the world turned the tide. The Czech Republic also played well in the second set. Thanks to three breaks, she took a 4:1 lead and then had four set points. However, she was unable to convert them and the duel ended in a shortened game.

In it, Bouzková evened the unfavorable development from 0:4, but the opponent worked out the match points and used the second one. The 21-year-old Chinese advanced to the 2nd round of Roland Garros for the first time in her career.

Paris debutant Brenda Fruhvirtova put on a fighting performance and kept up with reigning Wimbledon champion Rybakin for a long time. In the first set, she broke her opponent's serve and led 4:3, but then the native of Moscow, representing Kazakhstan, turned the tide. Also in the second set, Linda Fruhvirtová's younger sister took the lead thanks to a break in the third game. However, the favored Rybakinová has not allowed her a game since then and ended the duel at the third match point.

“I definitely take only positive things from the match. I went into it without any pressure. I had nothing to lose and I just went to enjoy it. I take it as an incredible experience and evaluate it very positively,” said Brenda Fruhvirtová.

< h3>Medvedev was eliminated in the 1st round with Seyboth Wild

World number two Daniil Medvedev was knocked out in the first round at Roland Garros. The Russian tennis player was defeated on the Parisian clay after a more than four-hour fight by Thiago Seyboth Wild, a player from the second hundred of the ATP rankings. The Brazilian, who qualified for the main competition of the Grand Slam tournament for the second time in his career, won 7:6, 6:7, 2:6, 6:3, 6:4.

He made a victorious return to the Paris Grand Slam after last year's serious ankle injury of the German tennis player Alexander Zverev. The former world number two defeated South African Lloyd Harris 7:6, 7:6, 6:1 in the opening round. World number one Iga Šwiateková from Poland stepped up to defend her title with a 6:4, 6:0 win over Spain's Cristina Bucsa.

Medvedev, who after winning the title at the Masters in Rome was also among the favorites for Roland Garros, failed in Paris on his first opponent, just like in his first four starts on the clay here, and will not follow up on last year's round of 16 participation.

The 23-year-old Seyboth Wild, ranked 172nd in the world, on the other hand, scored his first Grand Slam success. He was eliminated in the 1st round on his debut at the 2020 US Open. Today, however, Medvedev destroyed Philippe Chatrier with a crushing forehand in windy conditions.

“I watched Daniil as a junior and to beat him on a court like this is a dream come true,” said the Brazilian, who has already won two titles on clay at the Challengers this season. “I tried to play good angles, use my forehand against his and it worked great. Physically it was difficult, I had a little cramp, but I still tried to play my best and it worked,” he added after the success of a lifetime.

Zverev tore ligaments in his ankle a year ago in the semifinals with Rafael Nadal, left the court in a wheelchair and missed the rest of the season after surgery. “It's very nice to be back again. After last year, this is a tournament that I really put on my calendar, I really wanted to play here and play well,” said Zverev after the match on the court.

In the end, the even duel with Harris was affected by the opponent's problems with the calf muscle, which were fully manifested at the end of the second set. Zverev won the tie-break 7-0 and, after a medical break, took the third set smoothly in 31 minutes. “I know I have to play better, but it was very windy, Lloyd also served excellently. But I'm happy that I won in three sets, I usually start Roland Garros in five sets,” he added with a smile.

21-year-old Šwiateková , who did not finish the quarterfinals at the general in Rome due to a thigh muscle injury, is aiming for her third title in the last four years and her fourth Grand Slam trophy overall at Roland Garros. After an even opening set, in which she struggled to serve in windy conditions, she saw off her opponent with a “canary” in the second set.
